3. Turtle Temper
4. New Friend, Old Enemy
5. I Think His Name is Baxter Stockman

3.0 out of 5 stars rather wait February 6, 2013
I love the show, I really do, and have been anxious for when it would finally be available on DVD... but for only 6 episodes... I'd rather hold out and wait for the season 1 set.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heroes in a Half-Shell...Turtle Power! February 20, 2013
When I first found out about the new Ninja Turtles Nicktoon, I was excited! Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was one of my favorite cartoon series growing up and the new Nicktoon was something to be excited about. With various elements from both the Mirage Comics series and the 80's cartoon I was a big fan of, it is a great combination. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Complete Classic Series Collection I also love how the Nicktoon introduced Donatello's crush on April.
For some odd reason, Walmart released the DVD the week before Amazon did, so I'm watching the DVD right now! The key thing to know about this DVD release features an `uncut' version of the hour-long pilot episode `Rise of the Turtles' (let's see a Season Box Set do that!), along with five additional episodes from the first season. Before the DVD's release, I only saw two of the episodes that are featured on it "New Friend, Old Enemy" and " I Think His Name Is Baxter Stockman", all the others I saw were later episodes. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - Trailer If you chose to wait for a Season set, you might get the pilot in two half-episodes, but this DVD release has it `uncut'. So, it might be worth it, it depends on your own opinions.

4.0 out of 5 stars Can't wait for the entirety of Season One! February 26, 2013
I was born in 1981, which means that I grew up on the original TMNT series. I had--okay, I still have--a collection of TMNT memorabilia, all of the movies, all kinds of stuff. I've seen these characters through countless rebirths, whether it was one of the many cartoon series, the comics from Mirage, Archie, or Image. Whenever there's a remake, the fans of the original will be hesitant to buy into the new version. I was especially doubtful when it came to the casting of the voice talent.

I'm a big fan of Greg Cipes, and of course Rob Paulsen played our beloved Raphael in the original series. However, I think that the current cast could not possibly be any better. I loved the original cast, of course, but something about this current cast feels more close to the comics. I also think that Rob's voice fits better with Donatello.

This series, while indulging in small amounts of silliness, plays them out as characters instead of caricatures. Each one has his or her light and dark sides. I also enjoy seeing April getting to learn to be a ninja like she did in the comics instead of a helpless reporter. It's also nice to see her as a teenager in this series. It just adds a new dynamic to the story.

It also doesn't hurt that there are a lot of little references to the old series, to the comics, and subtle shout-outs to the fans of the classic versions. I think that if you approach this new series with an open mind and a love of all things TMNT, you will fall in love just as I have.

Besides, fans of TMNT should be excited about introducing a whole new generation to the characters we know and love.

5.0 out of 5 stars What's not to like? July 9, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
We don't have cable, direct tv or a dvr, and when Hulu started deleting our banked episodes of TMNT, we were horrified. So I just went ahead and bought this set and its great. Well worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cowabunga!....I mean Booyakasha! March 9, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have been one of my favorite cartoons ever since the original, classic series debuted in 1987. Which brings me to this cartoon of 2012. What we have on this particular DVD is 5 (technically 6) episodes of the first season from Nickelodeon's take on the TMNT. There is a lot to love here from old to new fans.

It seems like this series was designed to retain the old fans, while making some new ones along the way. Michelangelo's voice had me concerned, but once I watched the first episode, my concerns were put to rest as the voice cast is pretty solid. Featuring Rob Paulson (Donatello), Sean Astin (Raphael), Jason Biggs (Leonardo), and Greg Cipes (Michelangelo).

My only gripe is the show is not on Bluray, but no big deal. I have a feeling they will release the Bluray when the first season is concluded.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cowabunga! June 7, 2013
I'll begin by saying that I was wrong. I'm of the generation that lived and breathed the 1987 Ninja Turtles. I first saw the trailer for this cartoon and thought it was a cheap CGI ripoff of the franchise.

But then I watched the first episode and fell in love all over again. It made me feel the way I did all those years ago growing up with the Turtles. Except, unlike the 1987 cartoon, which hasn't aged well, this show looks and feels fresh. The 87 cartoon was corny and the animation was often inconsistent at best. By contrast, the writing for this series is actually pretty decent for a cartoon. Each episode is self-contained, but I like how the build upon a larger story with some continuous characters and elements. The action is well paced but also allows time for character moments. Best of all, the show is genuinely funny. Not goofy, corny, "I can't believe I'm watching this" funny, but some real "laugh out load" moments.

I think this show has potential to revive the Ninja Turtles franchise. I dare say it might even be better than the 1987 series in some ways. Definitely recommended.

agh! again no blu-ray!
Unfortunately, because the target audience are only kids, who typically don't have Blu-Ray players. Yes, parents buy them and either 1) watch them with their kids or 2) watch them themselves, but regardless, the mentality of the distribution company is to put them out on DVD for kids, with DVD... Read more
